Singapore, 9 December 2016 – Challenger Technologies, the largest homegrown IT products and services provider in Singapore, kicks off its community outreach effort this festive season to benefit Runninghour. The tech retailer has pledged to raise $20,000, from the sale of selected fitness wearables in the non-audio category (please see Annex for examples of products), across all Challenger stores and, a one-stop lifestyle and tech online marketplace for members.
Starting from today till 31 January 2017, the amount raised will go towards sponsoring 500 special needs runners at Runninghour 2017. Back for a third edition, the mass run aims to rally the community to show their support for the integration of people with special needs through mainstream sports. Runninghour’s signature ‘Blindfold’ run is the only race in Singapore where participants run alongside visually, intellectually and physically challenged runners.
“There is no better time than the season of giving to initiate this meaningful collaboration with Runninghour. We are very excited to be able to contribute to Runninghour, and play our part to ensure that special needs individuals, who wish to take part in the run, are able to do so without having to worry about registration cost. At the same time, we hope to raise awareness on Runninghour among our shoppers and inspire them to support the cause while they are reveling in their festive shopping,” said Ms Loo Pei Fen, Chief Marketing Officer of Challenger Technologies.
To drive more awareness towards Runninghour, Challenger has placed QR codes within its physical stores, which allows shoppers to scan the codes with their mobile phones. The QR code will lead them to a dedicated Runninghour page on Through this, shoppers will have a better understanding of Runninghour, and be encouraged to sign up for Runninghour 2017.
Mr John See Toh, Chairman and Co-founder of Runninghour Co-Operative Limited said, “We are thrilled and very grateful to have the support of Challenger in this initiative. Their contribution will certainly go a long way for all our special needs participants as it gives them the opportunity to take part in a big scale public event. Events like these are the perfect way for them to integrate with the ordinary population. We look forward to future collaborations like these, which help bring greater awareness to our cause and foster a better understanding of people with special needs.”
